Why I'm glad I can drive

I waited a till I was 18 to start my driving lessons, mainly because I had recently moved to a new area but was also in the middle of my A-Levels so didn’t want an extra pressure. I have been driving for nearly a year now and it is honestly one of the best things I have done.

Independence – I love being able to decide where I want to go, If someone asks me to go out I can just hop in the car and go rather than having to rely on my parents or the dreaded public buses! It also means that my mum and dad can just text me if they need some bits and pieces and I can drive round to get it.

Being able to go anywhere at any time – I don’t have to time everything with everyone else. Before I used to have to make sure I either went to a place I could get to on a bus or make sure I picked a day where my mum or dad could take me.

Saving time – I used to spend half my life (okay maybe a slight exaggeration) waiting for public transport. I used to hate standing in the rain waiting for a bus that was normally 40 minutes late then arriving at college looking like a drowned rat! By being able to drive I only need to rely on myself and it means I don’t need to leave super early!

I get that its not all positives. Combine driving lessons, petrol and insurance it isn’t the cheapest thing to do but I am so glad I started, I can’t imagine not being able to drive now as I have become so much more independent!
